Fleece Navidad!

December 17, 2018 in My Favorite Things - No Comments

Hi there! I’ve got a few more Christmas cards to share this week and these llamas were so much fun to work with! They’re from the MFT Happy Llamadays stamp set and they’re decorated and ready for Christmas. I just love this sentiment. Too cute!

I started by inking the background using Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade Distress inks. After I blended these colors, I went over the top of all of them with Old Paper distress ink to tone it down a bit. I splattered a little watered down gouache and then heat embossed the star in white embossing powder (that stamp is from an older CTMH stamp set).

 

 

Then, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax die and die-cut the piece twice using the MFT Stitched Mountain Range die and the MFT Surf and Turf die. I inked the mountain range using Frayed Burlap and Hickory Smoke distress inks and for the ground, I used Old Paper and Vintage Photo. I heat embossed the sentiment from this set using white embossing powder.

I stamped the llamas using MFT Cement Gray hybrid ink and colored them with Copics and colored pencil for some of the details.

 

Since I chose a dark brown cardstock for the card base, I die-cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm for an insert and added another cute llama inside.

Hope you enjoyed my card today and thanks for stopping by!
